Although the outside needs a facelift (and a nicer sign) and the inside decor was a bit tired, the food and service more than made up for that. The attentiveness of the waiters was perfect. The tuxedo-clad waiters (who also cook at your table) and the view of the city, keeps your attention away from the lack of ambiance. Expect to pay about $70-$90 per person with tip. Worth it! The steak Diane was so tender I actually cut it with the blunt end of my butter knife!! Make sure you try the portobello mushroom appetizer. We will be back.

Everything about this restaurant is wonderful. It very classically furnished. The staff is very professional. The ambience is quiet, great for conversation The food is excellent. It is moderately pricey but a much better value than most high end restaurants. The steak au poivre was amazing as were the veal sweetbreads. If you haven't tried it, you should!

While not inexpensive ... A great restaurant, food was excellent, service was excellent. I like the tuxedo'ed wait staff, I like that some items are prepared at your table-side. The dessert list was AMAZING.

One of the best restaurants EVER for special occasions. Their signature item, Pepper Steak, is to die for. The service is second to none. My family has been going there for years and will continue to for many years to come. Even though it is on the pricey side, it is definitely worth every penny.

The food, ambiance and view are spectacular and by far the finest in the city. Most food preparation is done table-side and is a pleasure to watch. However, the prices are high but worth it. Plan on spending between $75 and $140 per person.

This restaurant has gone downhill. It used to be my favorite in all of Colorado Springs. Escargot had no flavor. Pepper Steak was not medium as was ordered. It was almost well done. Beef was tough.

Pepper Tree is a gem. Food and service have been outstanding every time we have been there. Both with our kids (teen/tween) and business dinners. The steaks are wonderful (have had both the Signature Pepper Steak, and Steak Diane). Lobster bisque is amazing (when available), and a solid wine selection to suit the meal.

One of the top five dinners of my life. Great dinner and a great atmosphere. I would skip dessert next time, however, the appetizer, soup, salad, and dinner were delicious. I have eaten at Ruth's Chris, Morton's, and Fleming's and this breasts them all. They do not even offer a steak knife because you do not need it.

I've been waiting to dine at PepperTree for years. I was so pleased we were able to make a reservation for our Silver Anniversary. It was as good as I had hoped for, if not better! The service was excellent, the view was beautiful and the food was spectacular! I would definitely recommend eating here for any special occasion or for a great night out!

Service was a bit spotty at first but improved quickly. We try to avoid Saturday evenings. To quote a restaurateur that we knew "Saturday's are for emergencies". This being my wife's birthday (actually the next day - Sunday - but they are closed on Sunday's), this was an emergency. The food and preparation were excellent. The "house special" is their Pepper Steak which is the best steak my wife has ever had. It is prepared table-side which makes the meal special. One of the more expensive restaurants in town but well worth price. And don't miss the Cherries Jubilee, also prepared table-side.

My partner and I loved the food and the service at Pepper Tree. It was my partner’s birthday and it was the perfect time to try out this new, high-end restaurant. In many ways, they really did not disappoint. The value, though, is really the only reason I would not recommend Pepper Tree to my friends as a restaurant they could enjoy going regularly. On the other hand if one can afford over $250 meals for two and can justify spending that amount regularly; I would say go for it. Pepper Tree experience may become one of the staples in your life that will make this kind of value justification possible.

Outstanding fine dining and service! It made our 50th anniversary memorable and very rewarding. The ambiance was a nice touch and made our two friends, my wife and me very relaxed, and we all had an outstanding experience. We were also amazed by the professionalism and technical knowledge from the staff, from menu items, drink selections, and recommendations for that evening, and especially the friendliness from everyone.

From the first moment we walk through the door. The service was spot-on. Hanging our coats, pulling out the chairs, recommending favorite drinks and dishes. The food was flavorful and serve hot. We had Caesar salad and Bananas Foster made tableside. Thanks for the show and the great service.

Our first disappointing meal at Peppertree. The wait staff had more than one challenge getting our order correct including two (out of six) improperly prepared entrees. Also, for the first time our filets were not tender requiring significant sawing through sinew in all of our meat. More than one of us wanted to request a steak knife. The "standard" table knife just didn't "cut it." In the past the service has been spot on and the fillets have been fork tender. Not this time. Very disappointed for the money paid.

First of all, we usually love this place. I say usually because on this visit things weren’t up to their normal standards.
The French Onion soup was luke warm at best! We had a bottle of champagne with dinner and had about a half bottle left so we asked a waiter to re-cork it for us like we have on many other occasions. He said , “we can’t re-cork champagne”, and walked away. We asked another waiter and he very kindly re-corked it for us.
Additionally, it was my wife’s birthday. They normally recognize that with some small token of acknowledgement. This time nothing!
Not their best showing.

Memorable meal. Everything was top -notch. So was the price. Would really like to see a renovation, inside and out, especially out, for what we paid. Underwhelming as we approached the building. Sea of asphalt, then your teenage friend's 1980s house. Bathroom has never been updated, it seems. Tables and service were appropriate for the price range though. So overall it was worth it for a special occasion. One to remember!
